INSPIRED BY UNEXPECTED MOMENTS THAT ARE OFTEN OVERLOOKED, THIS VANCOUVER-BASED PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES DAILY LIFE AS IT UNFOLDS.
Jennilee Marigomen’s work suggests that she’s a keen observer of her surroundings.
There are plenty of stolen moments. A car’s windshield reflecting a dreamy light. A cigarette in a puddle of leaves. Three pretzels stacked on a vendor’s cart. The Vancouver-based photographer describes her work as “quiet, aware and unassuming.” She adds, “Intimate and distant at the same time. Ephemeral.”
Her work is deceptively simple. To capture the mundane and the magical at the same time is a talent. “I think that a lot of my photos capture a familiar yet specific truth that is common to everyone,” she says. “Something that you can look back to and feel at that moment in time, everywhere and every day.”

Nick Knight and SHOWstudio present the history of contemporary fashion photography as told from the subjects’ perspectives. When envisaging ‘Subjective’, Knight sought to empower models by putting their oft-unheard stories in the spotlight. He talks to a range of women, including Kate Moss, Alek Wek, Lily Cole and Tatjana Patitz, whose faces and forms helped create the world’s most iconic images.

Workshop: Jason Fulford on Visual Language: How Pictures Speak to Each Other
Saturday, November 15, 2014, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
Sunday, November 16, 2014, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
547 West 27th Street, 4th Floor
New York, N.Y.
“Everywhere there is a grammatical mysticism. Grammar. It is not only the human being that speaks—the universe also speaks—everything speaks—unending languages.”
The single photograph, despite its specificity, remains ambiguous. The image is always relative to something else: another image, the mode of presentation, text, or the viewer’s own mood and memory. For this reason, context is an important tool for the photographer. Context can be used either to play on the photograph’s inherent ambiguity, or to clarify the photographer’s message. In this hands-on workshop, participants will discuss and experiment with visual language and the relationship between images. On day one, participants engage in a series of games and exercises that will teach them conceptual editing tools using found imagery. On day two, participants will work on their own and each other’s personal work.
In advance of the workshop, participants must send twenty-five found photographs and twenty-five of their own photographs, the latter preferably from a single body of work.
